Yolanda Foster’s future with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is reportedly up in the air.
Following news of Yolanda Foster’s possible firing from the show, her friend and former co-star, Brandi Glanville, spoke out, claiming the mother of three hasn’t yet decided whether or not she will return to the show for Season 7.
“[Yolanda Foster’s] deciding whether or not to come back to Housewives,” Glanville told People Magazine on June 11 while promoting her new series, Famously Single, which premieres tonight on the E! Network.

“I was like, ‘Girl, you need to do it because we want to see you get better, we WANT TO see you come out through this divorce, and show people that, even through divorce, you’re okay. You can be in your 50s and be hot as f***,'” Glanville continued.
In December of last year, after four years of marriage, Yolanda Foster and her husband, David, announced they were ending their marriage. Ironically, their divorce announcement fell on the same day as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 premiere.
While Yolanda Foster hasn’t said much about her split publicly, she did address her divorce during the finale episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 as she chatted with friend Erika Jayne Girardi while unpacking her stuff at her Los Angeles condo.
As for the reason behind Yolanda Foster’s divorce, Glanville stayed mum when asked about the issue during Sunday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
“I promised [Yolanda Foster] I would never talk about this,” she explained, according to a report by AllAboutTRH on June 14.

Rumors of Yolanda Foster’s alleged firing from the show began swirling earlier this month after Tamara Tattles claimed the reality star would not be returning to the show for Season 7. At the time, it was also noted that Eileen Davidson had been demoted while Kathryn Edwards was allegedly booted from the Bravo series, as well.
A short time later, a second report claimed Yolanda Foster had been asked back, but only if she agreed to leave her Lyme disease storyline off the show. As fans will recall, Yolanda Foster’s Lyme disease was the main storyline during Season 6 and many fans were annoyed with the ongoing controversy in regard to her illness and choice of treatments.
“Lyme disease is off the table for her storyline. The viewers are tired of hearing about it, and Yolanda was very unhappy about the turn of events. Yolanda said she wanted to raise awareness about Lyme disease and producers understand her position,” a source told In Touch Weekly earlier this month.
“Instead, Bravo gave Yolanda an ultimatum — her storyline this season will be looking for love since she is now single,” the source continued. “[Yolanda Foster] didn’t want to expose that part of her life to the public, but in the end, [she] caved in to Bravo’s demands because she wanted to be a part of the show.”
A rep for Yolanda Foster denied the report, however, while a spokesperson for Bravo said, “This is completely untrue. The show covers whatever is happening in the lives of the ladies.”
Bravo’s spokesperson did not address claims of Yolanda Foster’s possible firing or return, and Foster has stayed silent about casting, as well.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 is expected to return to Bravo later this year.
